I called Jolani Guest Lodge for accommodation and spoke to Polla. I asked her if she has accommodation for 2 people, check in 2 April 2019, check out 3 April. She had told me she has accommodation available for 2 people and asked me what time are we arriving. I explained tk her that we are traveling from Bloemfontein to Welkom and due to us doing a roadshow we should be the by 5pm or later.

She agreed to reseving 2 rooms for us. When we arrived at tbe guest house, We rang the bell at the gate and said who we are.

Her response was " Sorry I gave your room to 2 gentlemen that arrived befor you and you did not oay for the room."

I said "but there is a booking in place and you have my number tk call me to confirm if I am still coming or not." she refused and referred us to another guest house in the are.

I then called bacm speaking Afrikaans and asked for accommodation and Pola mentioned that she has accommodation for me.

How do you do this to someone, on top of it all is it a guest house that only accommodates Afrikaans speaking people?

There is ratings on their website,l that I feel should be stripped from them.... 😡😡😡😡😡

We kept your rooms for you at Jolani 1, which is at 14 Parkway, Riebeeckstad, but you arrived at Jolani 2 at Badenhorst Street, Naudeville, Welkom long after check-in time closed late at night. (and the manager at Jolani 2 did not want to call me at Jolani 1 so late at night) Jolani 2 was fully booked and the manager there were confused, because she did not now anything about such a booking. We adhere to strict check-in times due to the safety of the other guests on the premises. You promised to be arriving between 16pm - 17pm, and never made any arrangements to indicate that you will be arriving after check-in time closed. We could not call you back, because you called form a private number. We do not accept the blatant lie that you say that we had place for Afrikaans speaking people. 80-90% of our clientele is english speaking and if that were true, why would we accepted you as guest when called earlier that day when you spoke english? I think this review is extremely unfair because of you that did not hold to your arrival arrangements made earlier that same day. Please see that all our reviews is of happy guests and that we are rated amongst the best the Goldfields has to offer.

We only stayed one night and were most suitably impressed, the room was huge and extremely comfortable. It was a little chilly when we arrived at around 17h45, this made the complimentary sherry most welcome. Polla is an absolute star and very accommodating, Would definitely recommend Jolani Guesthouse as an upmarket establishment with excellent value for money.

We recently spent a weekend here and have nothing but compliments for Polla and the manner in which her establishment is run.

From an initial complimentary phone call to the final goodbyes, we were treated with friendship and as special guests by an effervescent host.

Clean and great service, owners made contact before the visit, giving it a personal touch. Easy to get to and beautiful surroundings. This was a business trip and will definitely return for business and leisure.

The venue including staff is clean and friendly for a traveller.

Their is ample security and the host goes over board in ensuring that guests are comfortable and relaxed.

I would definitely recommend it.
